I am looking for a mature, nonsmoking, quiet, and neat person to stay in my house and take care of my two young cats while I am away. One is very outgoing and the other one is timid with strangers, so you will have to work to get the timid one to eat. The house is located in a pleasant residential neighborhood in Santa Clara, close to Santa Clara University. Also would need you to manage other house stuff like mail, light sweeping/vacuuming (only because cat litter gets tracked around), and watering indoor and outdoor plants. There is a slight chance my return could be delayed so if you have flexibility to extend past October 9 that would be helpful but not essential.
